Summer of Resolutes

EB Anderson lets Broke Down Horse out of the stable

There's a darkness in EB Anderson's songs, a whiskey-soaked, dusty-booted throwback vibe conjuring Johnny Cash and Townes Van Zandt. It's classic country music. "I think there's a lot of honesty in that kind of music—people are going back to it a little bit more, but almost playing dress-up," the Trenton native says in his weathered voice. "You know that it sounds great, going back to that kind of music, but I find a lot of the times it lacks a lot of authenticity. I'm not really into the newgrass kind of thing, Mumford and Sons." The Resolutes' new record, Broken Down Horse (Let's Riot Records), is all stand-up bass, guitar licks, rambling and roving across landscapes and situations of varying difficulty. "There's a lot of honesty in it, it's very sincere and not trying
to put anything on," he says of his chosen genre. "It's very pretension-free."
